Inspired by the colours and patterns of honeycomb, the enamel on this necklace has been fired repeatedly in the kiln with layers of Vitreous and Industrial Enamel to achieve the organic patterns within the enamel. Each pattern is completely unique due to the hand drawn qualities and the nature of the enamel when fired in the kiln, therefore making this necklace one of a kind.
Linen Thread and Silver Leaf
One of a Kind
Please wear your enamelled jewellery with care. Enamelling is a technique of fusing powdered glass to metal and the enamel can be fairly hard wearing, however, please take care not to drop your piece or apply any force. Remove your piece before showering, avoid getting it wet and any exposure to chemicals. It is recommended to put your piece on over soft floor such as carpet. Using a soft toothbrush, both enamel and silver can be lightly brushed with warm soapy water and cleaned with a soft cloth.
